CCMC-HOL # Saturday Special Card Challenge

Here is my card for Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Special Card Challenge. The Challenge was to make one of a kind Christmas card. I decided to make a circle punch card using as many Stampin' Up! punches that would fit appropriately on the tree.

I wanted to make a sophisticated card. I immediately thought of Mocha Morning Speciality designer series paper and Brushed Gold card stock.

I chose Crumb Cake card stock for the base of the card. The second layer I chose Whisper White card stock. Using the Big Shot I ran it though the new textured Impressions Embossing folder from the Holiday Mini catalog. The rest was really easy. I punched a variety of sizes of circles from a variety of the Mocha Morning Specialty paper and Brushed Gold card stock and attached them to the second layer using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I used the Lace Ribbon Border punch for the trunk of the Christmas tree. I drew a triangle on the Whisper White card stock after running it through the embossing folder. I began layering the circles being sure to use a variety of sizes and colors. I added punches from the Boho Blossom punch to give the tree some interest. I added Basic Rhinestones and sprayed the entire card with Gold Glow Smooch Spritz.
Happy Stamping!
